Low flying stunt leaves rowers in shock

The pilot of a float plane flying over the Ottawa River left some members of the Ottawa Rowing Club in shock.

A video uploaded to YouTube shows the plane taking off from the Ottawa River and flying below the MacDonald Cartier Bridge.

Karin Germann tells CTV that it's normal to see float planes in the area but she's never seen a stunt like that.

"When it took off I think most of us were just kind of thinking this guy is either crazy, we weren't sure if it was illegal what he was doing," she explained. "It certainly didn't seem like a safe thing to do"

She said there was concern for the amount of boats out on the river when the plane took off.

The proper authorities have been contacted about the incident.
